38m. The first corner direct. The preferable option since loss of loose flakes on the original line.

Climb the left hand corner crack, pull up over the crux and gain a ledge (peg). Continue up the large left hand crack to a good tree belay. Take care of some loose rock towards the top.

Walk off or abseil from the tree.

Wasn't expecting much, but the first half has some really quality climbing.

Didn't really climb this as well as when I lead it the first time, having got a bit stuck in the corner before the crux - managed to extract myself eventually. Nice lead by Mark.

There's a big piece of rock, about a third of the way up, that feels like it could go. Lots of loose rock, dirt and plant life! In all, fairly unenjoyable...

Last climb of the day, forgot the larger nuts so had to stop on a ledge and bring them up 😊

My first on-sight VS lead (other routes I led were ones I seconded first). Actually turned out to be a really nice route, the crux is certainly 4c (easier if you are tall). The rest of the route above that is fairly straightforward (most likely 4b) apart from a few puzzling moves where you have to hunt out the holds. Despite comments here, most of the route is pretty clean, there are some loose rocks towards the top but nothing that can not be avoided. Well protected, I placed around 17 pieces of gear (including one peg and one thread). I was running out of medium sized nuts and offsets despite having two full sets, and used quite a few hex on wires. The top part moves more towards cams due to many parallel cracks. Tree belay and walk off at dusk - nice:)

Went to do Strike, but half way way up realised this was the only option. Due to a rock fall a couple of years ago, Strike has been regraded at VS 4C in the Wye Valley suppliment and you have to do the direct start as discribed in the original guide. Nice route in style, but a lot of loose rock. A fair grade due to the amount of unstable blocks. There is a lot of loose rock when topping out and due to the length of the pitch not much rope left (with a 50m rope) if you want to belay off a more solid tree than the yew at the top. The views across the wye valley are great,but does not earn a star

Warm up. First few moves wet and slippery.

really nice route, needs another star! not sure if the crux was the "direct bit" or a bit further up. VS; really?

Nice clean climb obvious corner, completed the more direct 4 c varriant by just sticking to the crack. Good pro and solid hold make for a very nice climb

the 4c section was pretty tough, and the 4b sections were no pushover either though not too hard once worked out! Typically relentless Wyndcliff - 24 items of gear most of the on the lower half.
